Kansas City Chiefs now in driver's seat for No. 1 pick

The Kansas City Chiefs are in the lead for the rights to the No. 1 overall pick in this upcoming NFL draft.

This isn't the race that many Chiefs fans thought they'd be looking at 11 games into the 2012 season. With the 17-9 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, combined with the Jacksonville Jaguars victory over the Tennessee Titans, the Chiefs are now separating themselves among NFL teams to get that top pick.

Many Chiefs fans will tell you they aren't happy that THIS is the year the Chiefs are going to be stuck with the No. 1 overall pick because of the lack of Andrew Luck's or RG3's. But there's still quite a bit of time before the draft and I would fully expect at least a few players to begin to separate themselves leading up to the draft.

It won't make the next five games any more enjoyable to watch but I'd venture to guess the names Geno Smith, Tyler Wilson, Matt Barkley, Mike Glennon and Tyler Bray will be popular 'YouTube searches' within the Kansas City limits over the next few months.

For those wanting to watch many prospects I'd recommend these channels for your viewing pleasure. JMPasq, JPDraftJedi, and finally NFLDraftCutups.
